Air conditioner ratings part 8 continues our expert and unbiased reviews with a look at the Day & night, DiamondAir, Ducane, Ecox, and EverRest Elite Series brands.
DAY & NIGHT---1*-----3*---------NA
This is one of the brands from INTERNATIONAL COMFORT PRODUCTS which is a part of UNITED TECHNOLOGIES CORP. The PERFORMANCE 14 (N4A5) units are basic air conditioners that are suitable for all areas of the USA to meet the regional efficiency standards. They have a durable baked on finish but use a wire grille to protect the condenser coil which does not actually do much to protect it.
The CONSTANT COMFORT DELUXE 19 is a premium unit with a variable speed fan motor for quieter and more efficient operation. The units have the ability to communicate with the other parts of the home's HVAC system to maximize comfort and efficiency. They are backed by a very good warranty but are only available in the USA and Canada through their dealer network.
This brand is manufactured for sale on the internet. They offer basic air conditioners with durable scroll compressors but the warranty is not very good.
This is a brand from ALLIED AIR ENTERPRISES INC. which is a LENNOX INTERNATIONAL company. The 4AC14B series units are good basic units that have a reliable scroll compressor. They use a wire mesh coil protection which does not actually protect the condenser coil very well. The 4AC18LT units are premium units with a two speed compressor and variable speed condenser fan for energy savings. They also have a swept wing fan blade and a heavy duty compressor blanket for quiet operation but the warranty is not as good as many brands. The brand is usually sold by dealers of other Lennox brands as a cheaper alternative to their premium brands.
This brand is available in the USA, Latin America, & the Caribbean. The EVCU is a basic 16 SEER unit with a durable scroll compressor. Their website does not have a stated guarantee for their products.
EVERREST ELITE SERIES--1*--5*--5*
These air conditioners are made by GOODMAN MANUFACTURING which is a part of DAIKIN GLOBAL. The ASX13 models are basic units with scroll compressors and a compressor blanket for quieter operation. They have ComfortAlert onboard diagnostics and a louvered steel coil guard but only an average guarantee.
The ASXC18 is a premium unit with the ability to communicate with the rest of the home's heating/cooling systems. The unit also has a two speed condenser fan for added energy savings and quieter operation and is backed by a very good warranty. The AVX20 model is their entry into the ultimate category and it has an efficiency rating up of to 24 SEER and an ECM fan motor for years of reliable service.
